Senators Left Out of Loop Make Their Pique Known

NYT reported There were two types of senators at Thursday's confirmation hearing for Gen. Michael V. Hayden: the briefed, and the briefed-nots. The former were mostly polite. The latter, especially Democrats, threw the Congressional equivalent of a temper tantrum.

They need to demonstrate that they can be trusted, and when secrets are leaked they need to encourage prosecution of the leaker, rather than taking political advantage of the leak, and maybe they would be brought into the loop on more secrets.
